The Witcher 3 complete edition and shadow of war on the switch.

Those are great ports.

How about we not troll for no reason, ok?

hmmm.. some games that come to my mind are Doom 1 on Snes, Doom 3 on Xbox, Half Life 2 on Xbox, The Witcher 2 on x360, Rise of the Tomb Raider on x360, MGSV: The Phantom Pain on Ps3 and X360, MGS3 on 3DS, Xenoblade Chronicles on 3DS, Injustice on Ps Vita and some others that i dont remember now.

Resi 2 on GBA !( But not released.)



Doom on my 2001 Nokia phone. It did brick the phone though :/



Quake on Sega Saturn was quite an achievement; Digital Foundry even did a video on it:

The COD games on Wii. To have the full Modern Warfare campaign on the little system is still astonishing.

Agreed; MW3 especially was a stunning feat, I frequently found myself wondering "how the heck is this running on Wii?" during its more demanding setpieces.

Borderlands 2 on vita while not a great port by any means it was the perfect little pocket shooter. I had alot of fun with it anyway, shame they couldnt get that framerate locked



Always loved Super Mario 64 DS, I personally rank it amongst the best portable experiences of its era.

My buddy actually has a couple different video series on exactly this! He's done some awesome stuff regarding handheld games that pushed the system visually, and has a video on Driver 3's GBA version which looks amazing for the system. He also has a Max Payne one that I think did the rounds on YouTube for a bit. Whenever I see him talking about weird ports and such, it blows me away.

https://youtu.be/xXq3jH8TQNo for reference - the Driver 3 video!

 

Edit: To contribute more directly, the two Johns behind Doom porting Mario 3 to DOS, which was thought to be impossible, is always a personal favorite. But that didn't release so I don't know if that's fair to count.

You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

Here's some of the one's that blew me away.

Max Payne on the GBA

Doom on GBA

Modern Warfare 3 on the Wii

Metal Gear Solid 5 360 and PS3
